Weak sentiment sees Dollar/Yen posting 0.91% loss

(23:12) GMT

Dollar/Yen slides down from 148.16 to 146.81 today, losing 134 pips (0.91%).

While price action maintains a negative bias, Japan CFTC JPY speculative net positions released today at 20:30 UTC with a figure of -109,200, while the previous figure was -105,500. United States ISM Manufacturing Prices (Nov) came out at 49.9, while a consensus of analysts was expecting 46.2. United States ISM Manufacturing PMI (Nov) came out at 46.7, while a consensus of analysts was expecting 47.6.

Despite being in the red so far in the current trading session, USD/JPY peaked above its 3 day Simple Moving Average around 148 — typically an early indicator of a new bullish trend beginning to emerge. Dollar/Yen's lower Bollinger Band® is at 146.34, indicating that the asset has overextended to the downside and could, therefore, bounce back as buyers look for bargains. Dollar/Yen could begin to recover as it approaches significant support, now 59 pips away from 146.22. Dipping below could be an indication that further losses are ahead.

Overall, looking at the technical analysis landscape, although technical indicators are mixed and pointing in different directions, it seems Dollar/Yen is set to appreciate despite today's setback.

In the meantime, negative performances are seen in other pairs, EUR/NZD is down to 1.7525, losing 160 pips, after closing at 1.7685 in the preceding trading session. EUR/AUD closed at 1.63 (down 1.1%). After ending yesterday's session at 161.3, EUR/JPY lost 140 pips and is trading around 159.9.

Having set a peak of 151.71 around 18 days ago, Dollar/Yen is now trading 2.34% below this level.
